South Shore Locavores

Calling all Locavores

Join us! Everyone is welcome.

Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?

The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food. 

This year, the series is also hosted by the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation as part of a new collaboration: What’s the Big Idea: a Partnership for Lifelong Learning. The series is sponsored in part by WATD 95.9 FM Radio and Marty’s Buick GMC.

Next up:

May 19, 2016 Local Cheese Tasting with Adam Centamore
Wine and cheese educator Adam Centamore returns to offer a tasting of local cheeses and advice on wine pairings. His new book, Tasting Wine and Cheese: An Insider’s Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing, will be available for purchase and signing. Watch this one for a possible change of venue.

The series has been running since January 2010.

Love to cook? Please feel free to bring a dish to share to any of the gatherings. There will be time at the beginning and end of each meeting for Munching and Mingling.

TEAM UP AGAINST HUNGER: In an effort to help fight hunger on the South Shore, we will be collecting non-perishable foods at the beginning of each gathering to donate to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse. If you can, please bring a can.

The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases.

Gather with us at 7:00pm
Council on Aging’s Senior Center
30 Evergreen Street, Kingston MA 02364

Besides the terrific speakers and demos, we’ll provide thorough topic-related resource lists complied by the Kingston Public Library for each session.

See complete list here.
